is giving you is action based on the first time that she did it and what we're following up is action based on the second. we thought the first one was already rescinded and that is why we didn't pursue that. >> so for clarification, mr. bushman, so there was no rescission -- she didn't rescind her initial november 7th resignation? >> she did not and, in fact her actions were that of someone who was planning to leave, told the school through written email, which i have, that she was going to leave. and she indicated at that point it would be the 30th, but there was no action taken either written or otherwise, that we can determine. but the bottom line is the requirement is within three working days that it be submitted in writing. >> so basically what happened is she put in a resignation on november 7th. she put in another resignation november 14th, but did not rescind the original one on november 7th, is that correct? >> she submitted a second resignation requesting to change the date. >> okay. thank you. >> from the 17th to the 30th. whether you can do that or can't do that, i wil

administratively simple than simply having it on committee reserve. in either case it's going to require action by the committee to release the reserve and it might be simpler to just simply reserve balances over 100,000 for the committee's action. if you desire to have the item come back before the committee on a regular basis for action, if you're comfortable delegating that authority and having a written report, then i agree with the puc's suggestion. but if you're not comfortable with simply receiving a quarterly report on what's planned and being spent to our office releasing the reserve, i think it's simpler administratively to leave it on committee reserve. >> if i can, perhaps i can suggest if i can rollover this item for just a second and have the puc to consult with folks and make sure it works out programmatically for you. so if you do come on a quarterly basis, does that hold up your projects, do you expect that would be okay? and then we'll come right back to it. could you call item number 10, please. >> item number 10, ordinance amending the san francisco business and tax regulati
of supervisors to notify the controller of this action. >> [speaker not understood]. >> [speaker not understood]. the item before you today is to adopt the c-e-q-a findings for the geary bridge project. it is located in snow california and crosses over all immediate a creek within the snow regional wilderness area. the purpose of the project is to replace an existing wooden bridge with a new concrete and steel bridge that can accommodate vehicular and pedestrian traffic. the existing bridge was constructed in the 1930s and refurbished in the 1960s. the maximum loading capacity is limited to 8 tons and this restricts fire, maintenance, and cattle transport vehicles from accessing the bridge. these vehicles must use a nearby low water creek crossing to access facilities within the watershed and can only do so when water levels allow. we have been working with various agencies to eliminate low water creek crossings within our watershed and this is one of them. the main purpose of the project is to construct a new bridge that can accommodate up to 63 ton loading, eliminate the need for vehicles to

. talk about that a little bit. we're only six days away. are you surprised by the lack of action here in washington on the fiscal cliff considering the dire implications for a lot of budgets in cities around america? >> actually, look, i am surprised. been around the block just a couple times. i've seen different things in the past, but this is very serious business, and apparently some members of congress just don't get it. the -- you can call it whatever you want to call it, but certainly fiscal is in front of it and it's not good. taxes going up for all americans, not a good thing. significant, possibly devastating budget cuts coming down to certainly state and local governments, not a good thing. and so this seemingly bad game of chicken, you know, this is not some schoolyard game here. this is about people's lives, it's about their livelihoods, it's about the future of cities, it's about programs that need the dollars to provide services that the citizens want and expect is lack of doing your job. and so congress, it seems to me, should be flying, literally, back into session to
. given the extensive series of emergency action committee reports and diplomatic security spot reports, that indicated that the security situation in eastern libya was coming from that to worse why was the state department unprepared for an assault. especially on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in the united states history. the report provides the beginning of an answer when it states that there was a pervasive realization among the personnel and the special mission was sent a high priority when it came to the security related requests. the security was not a priority just what was the priority of this department in libya and in benghazi in particular? but we should be careful not to focus our attention entirely on the tragic failure in benghazi and regard it as an isolated incident. one cannot look at the evidence and conclude anything other than what was a systematic failure for brard and more worrisome implications we cannot expect the same bureaucracy at the state whose management failures are now manifest to objectively review the departments organization procedure a

going to do. and action they had taken. and demonstrate and show us they were capable of stepping up and doing the job. progress has been made. that particular showing has not happened. i look at this, i think it's very clear that we own the land. i think it's very clear that we have a responsibility for maintaining the watershed and the assets that are there. both the underground and the surface expression of that, as you stated. we own several pieces of land where we have recreation, and we contract that out. golf courses is classic example. and this is similar, we have a piece of land to protect for the water purposes. where there is another public use, that goes beyond our expertise, we ask someone to do for us. the obvious one is the sister agency whose business is recreation and parks and management. that's not the only option but it's the first and most obvious as we come back to this in an mou discussion, we need to think about it this those terms. the same way we would if contracting with arnold palmer to run a course. what is it we want done. are these responsible bidders.
them? >> sure. that's what the class action lawsuit is about. i know you're a social media guy. imagine if your picture is posted on instagram and stolen and used as an ad. they profit it off it and it's your picture. it's interesting that now even with what their privacy policy says, they've made changes. when you join instagram and use it, you agree to those terms. when they change it to benefit the company, of course you have a right and cause of action. >> kelly, i know when you go on google and you google information, the company actually uses that data, mines of the data, maybe even sells it. isn't it the same? >> it is but facebook had a class action lawsuit about that for advertisements and selling information to companies and i think they settled for $915 million to make it go away. they have to disclose that ahead of time. you have to knowingly agree to that. instagram minors go on there. they cannot agree to any terms but instagram doesn't block them from using it so there's a possibility they'll pay. they have to be careful and user-friendly. when they try to capitalize on y
? >> no, i think one can be -- how do i put this? kennedy did not approve hitler's action towards the jews, she was appalled, kennedy came up with his own plan to rescue the jews, but kennedy and his speeches, in his letters, and his comments and his conversations it became abundantly clear to me every myth about the jewish conspiracies, about being a loyal to one another, about jews running the new deal that was called the jew deal by many. kennedy was anti-semitic in many ways, but he was not a nazi idle and not a sympathizer of hitler. he was not charles lindbergh. >> you talk about joseph kennedy because of his character i guess. also the case that she didn't visit who became president when he got sick then joe kennedy had an affair and he was never at home. the kids mimic the mothers, so the homa wasn't as happy as we seem to think, and yet the children are outstanding individuals. how did that come about? i have written three biographies now and one of the things i've learned when is that people are contradictory. there is no one in this room that hasn't done anything that a loved on
aide, they felt it's up to the democrats to act now. so the christmas spirit has not softened actions. but what has softened? customer confidence. in the last week gallup found the drop in the likelihood congress will come to a deal. also holiday spending hit its lowest rate since the 2008 recession. while the president said before he left for hawaii that he said he hoped the holiday would give them a chance to cool off and reach an agreement, it appears republicans would prefer to stay home for the holidays. merry christmas, everybody. for more on this, joining us now from washington, we have contributor jared bernstein. also a senior fellow on budget and policy priorities. and a former economist for vice president joe biden. and of course nbc's luke russert. luke, i'm starting with you. we just got a statement from speaker boehner and the house leaders. and shock. they are putting it back on the senate. tell us about the statement and where it's going from here. >> it's a fascinating ping-pong match right now. but really with the senate, john boehner, eric cantor with mccarthy and m
for consideration at future meetings. action. >> thank you, commissioners, commissioner turman. >> i wanted to announce that in keeping with our public hearings the commission, the oca and department, to hold meetings with the department regarding options we have arrived at a schedule. we are starting a little bit later than expected on the schedule, which will begin in 2013, that is through no fault of the department. it was mostly through having to schedule around the commissioner, myself in particular, because we wanted to make sure that all 3 members of the commission subcommittee would be able to be present. that committee being myself, commissioner chan from this office along with the department, the occ and member s of the public. and the dates which will be announced publicly, put up on our web site and announced in other ways, those dates are january 22nd, 2013, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the hamilton recreation center. february 4, 2013 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the scotish rites center and february 8, 2013, at the bayview opera house. so that information will be made available to
, community action grants coordination program. for the development in housing coordination program, it was intended to, one, coordinate with city agencies, community based organizations, and developers to provide an analysis of soma housing stock, plan development and potential displacement, and two, to facilitate and provide leadership development and education to low-income residents regarding housing and development issues. most staff and the cac reviewed the proposals and is recommending $100,000 to fund the agency neighborhood design proposal to provide analysis and communication and leadership development services and $60,000 to partially fund the veterans equity center proposal to provide leadership development training. both over a two-year period starting in january 2013. the neighborhood and business coordination program was intended to develop and implement a program that connects soma residents, community-based organizations and small businesses located in the neighborhood to create employment opportunities and other connections to achieve neighborhood cohesion. we did
to deliver youth action and educate ideas and teach the schools and districts about social emotional learning because after they see the film they want to know what do we do next? how do we impact that? and that's what i am up to and it's great to be here. >> thanks so much for coming here. we appreciate it. [applause] >> good afternoon everyone. i am rachel smith falls and a senior vice president here of futures without violence i wanted to thank you all for being here and formally welcome to futures without violence. as many of you know of the former name had that for close to 30 years and when we moved to this building we changed our name to futures without violence and for many reasons and it really does reflect the work that we do in the mission. we are here to create futures without violence and we believe it's possibility when we stand in solidity with people like yourself and i want to thank u for being here. you are one of the first groups to hold a all day conference in this space. we are open to suggestions if you have ideas or using the space for your own organizations. we
in and take action for what would be bullying or what is just a classroom management issue or behavioral issue? i would like to see if you could differentiate just a little bit about when you see intervention most effective for this thing that alex called bullying? >> as mandated reporters for sexual abuse but where is the mandated reporting for this type of abuse and stand for it and call out? i think the notion of the restorative frame and it's a reporture of a relationship and until such time we start talking about caring school communities and any of the ded greidation of other is limiting is a power differential and damaging the other we haven't taken on the notion of bullying in the way we need to and growing the social emotional well being of the young adults and quite frankly adults are -- we all know are totally compliitd and sometimes just afraid and don't know how to intervene and know enough so we have taken more time and are going to take more time to increase the capacity of the adults and to differentiate and feel more comfortable and i will tell you across race, across class
message to washington. would that be enough to jolt lawmakers into action? >> and as the year winds to a close, the head of aetna is back with us winding up for higher taxes in 2013 thanks to obama care. wait until you hear how high he thinks they could go. you're watching cnbc, first in business worldwide. stamps.com is the best. i don't have to leave my desk and get up and go to the post office anymore. [ male announcer ] with stamps.com you can print real u.s. postage for all your letters and packages. i have exactly the amount of postage i need, the instant i need it. can you print only stamps? no... first class. priority mail. certified. international. and the mail man picks it up. i don't leave the shop anymore. [ male announcer ] get a 4 week trial plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to stamps.com/tv and never go to the post office again. >>> well, we're getting numbers in. turns out retailers saw the weakest holiday season since 2008 hurt by bad weather and more uncertainty about the rising tax increases that could come next year. we're wondering if
at the earliest, that would be on friday. but, you know, the action really is now going to begin in the senate. there isn't that much of a rush for the house to come back. and when i say action, even that is a question mark. whether there will be action. i was talking to a democratic source who said right now what they had to figure out, victor, is whether or not harry reid working with the white house on this can get enough votes from republicans to cross party lines for even a scaled back measure, which the president laid out in general on friday, would just be to keep americans' taxes where they are for those making $250,000 or less. and to do a couple of other things, unemployment benefits, maybe, maybe extend the estate tax cut, which is -- which is also going to run out, but, again, they're not even -- the senator won't even consider doing this, i'm told, unless he's sure they'll get through the senate and the house because politically they don't think there is any reason for congress to take votes that are just going to fail. also, they that i it will be bad for the markets, even worse
mobile app. >>> the first class action lawsuit has been filed as a result of instagram's proposed terms of service change that would have allowed the social media company to sell users' photos without permission for advertising and the idea created a big backlash that forced the company to apologize and make about an about face. >> if instagram is not going forward with these plans, why the lawsuit? taking us through this is roy choy, managing editor at technobuffalo. that's the question i've had all along. they backtracked big-time when there was this backlash and yet we still have a class action lawsuit being brought. does it have any merit, do you think? >> i think it has absolutely no merit. i think it's a frivolous lawsuit. look for a bunch of attorneys that are looking to get their name out there in privacy law. >> do you think it's going to be dropped then? >> i definitely do think so. i think the only change that is really substantial at this moment is -- you can't take instagram to a court of law outside of a class action lawsuit. they have instituted a -- an arbitration system
and the energy department. here to explain the director of regulation policy for the american action forum. sam, welcome. i want to start with this $106 billion number we were talking about in the break. this is a lot of money. so $106 billion. these are rules that are still being written that were supposed to go into place sometime this year. this as the laws not already on the books, this is what is coming. tell us about that. >> correct. for example, there are 25 economically significant regulation at the white house now, that is regulations with a economic impact of $100 million or more. some are rules under the affordable care act, menu labeling rules, rules for vending machines, labeling requirements. so there is a lot at the white house now. there is lot of rules that are passed their statutory deadline. past the deadline for the administration set for them, that have been waiting around for several months. we don't know why. you can assume might be because of the election because the pace we're on right now is significantly lower than other re-election years. for example, 2008,004, and
action in the cme. telling us why volatility will be a friend of his environment. we have seen in the last few trading sessions getting near and near is a safer place, a hedge and a plea for a flocked to the dollar in hard-core assets like gold and others. what are we seeing in the market today where you are it? >> today the interesting thing is what is going on with option prices were if you look over the last 20 trading days, about a calendar month, the calendar had done nothing. an annualized movement 9.5%. that is crawling way slow. meanwhile we are seeing the vix, the volatility index, creating higher and higher and higher. why? this fiscal cliff, i think we will see a large one-day move coming out of this. up or down. i think that price that the auction players play with setup for one big move and a whole lot of slowness. the asset you are seeing people go for our insurance product. gold is a week dollar play. all of the asset spectators thae are doubling and we will print money. that is why the gold has had such a run-up. shibani: i like this idea and i want to push you
, as well. >> as for action in the overseas markets, the u.k. is closed today for boxing day as are some of the former brish colonies. in europe the dax down about there about 35 points, around half a percent. and overnight in japan, the nikkei, the yen falling to a 20-month low. you have the nikkei up 1.5%. the nikkei -- yen versus the dollar as shinzo abe returns to office as japan's new prime minister, promising monetary and fiscal reforms. we have the shanghai composite there up about a quarter percent. >>> all right. in today's top stories, the u.s. is five days away from going over the fiscal cliff. president obama is cutting his holiday vacation short, returning to washington tomorrow to continue talks to try to avoid that automatic tax hike and spending cut combination. that's the same day that congress returns to town. before the president left town on friday, he suggested a stopgap measure to freeze tax rates for people making less than $250,000 a year and extend unemployment benefits. reports say white house staffers have been quietly working with senate democrats to come up w
now while i believe it is absolutely the case that these actions averted a second great depression, i believe it is also true that we are now facing the consequences. and that is borrowing 31 cents of every dollar we spend. we've seen some improvement because we were borrowing as much as 40 cents of every dollar we spent. clearly that is unsustainable. it is going to require action. and i think most people who have studied this understand we have both a revenue and a spending problem. this chart i think demonstrates it quite clearly. this looks at the relationship between spending that's the red line and revenue, that's the green line, going back to 1950. so this is looking at 60 years of our spending and revenue history. you can see that we are near a 60 year high. we've come somewhat off it, we're near a 60 year low in revenue. that says to me we've got to work both sides of the equation. those who say we've got a spending problem have it half right. we also have a revenue problem and both sides have to be addressed. our gross federal debt surpassed 100% of our g.d.p. this year.
actions of our soldiers that morning. joining us now, "abc news" senior correspondent, author of "the new york times" best-selling book "the outpost." great to have you with us. >> is great to see you again.ce lou: have got to believe a white house correspondent for "abc news," the last thinge peoplehought was he will be bringing us a story fromor afghanistan. that is remarkable in and of itself. >> it is precisely because those at the white house reporting on the war but doing so as we do in washington from the comfort of the north lawn reporting on the pentagon and the white house and the troops upsurge numbers and how this became a project that's really became attached to. lou: you focus on this particular battle, you talk with nearly 225 individuals. how long did that take? >> they range from generals, private, widows, couple insurgents, one of whom i interviewed by skype. it was a big project that every time i thought i wasev done, tak to smitty, i mean ultimately i just had to stop because there was never going to be a time where i had talked to everybody. lou: you are pursuing one
with one to go. john wayne was considered for the role in a 1970's action film but it was ultimately decided he was too old for the part. the movie went on to be very successful. what movie was it? okay. he was considered for the role but then aged out up, please. the answer is: roll the tape. >> i know what you're thinking. did he fire six shots or only five? bell, to tell you the truth in all of this excitement i have kind of lost track myself. but being this is a 44 magnum. the most powerful handgun in the world it would blow your head clean off. you have got to ask yourself one question. do i feel lucky? well, do you punk? >> bill: i'm glad wayne didn't get the role because the movie would have been named dirty marion. that would not have worked. maccallum, you win.

torched the philadelphia. a series of fires had gone people to thinking and no action was taken. it was hard and a little frightening. as christmas approached, people forgot something. instead, the shells of overpriced gifts and freshwater at $3 per barrel and crawled up before their fighters. none were willing to take the phenomenal steps towards preventing the tragedy they so feared. in which broderick was experienced and knew was inevitable. instead, they press their noses against the window panes and watch black water flowed on the muddy streets to the shallow code. a horse shoe shaped bite in the western shore filled with abandoned ship. -- >> i have written another book that deals with these. between 1849 and 1851 ,-com,-com ma a perfectly good ship, people that got into the gold rush -- they jump overboard. they are not going to wait a second. they are going to get up and mine the gold. they left behind all of the ships. 1000 ships left. so on these ships we had 10,000 people. again, no one had ever written about this. so we have a gentleman with cows and sermons. you kno
